The Pixel 2’s design hasn’t aged gracefully, but everything else has.

Google’s Pixel 3 series is nearly upon us, and when the new phones are announced on Tuesday, they’ll be replacing the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL from last year. Before that happens, I want to take a look back at the former of those two devices and see how the regular Pixel 2 is holding up a year after it was first released.

A year old, and a year better.

The Pixel 2 phones were announced close to a year ago, with few substantial changes from the 2016 Pixels.

Google Home Mini review, 6 months later: The smart speaker that should be in everybody’s home

Simply put, the Home Mini is the perfect smart speaker for just about everyone.

When Amazon launched the Echo Dot in 2015, it made a breakthrough in the smart speaker industry by offering all of the smarts of Alexa in a package that was considerably smaller and more affordable than its flagship Echo speaker. That’s essentially the same path that Google took with the Home Mini, and while all of the things it does are done better by the  [Read More…]

Six months later, Google Lens still isn’t great

I know it’s a preview, but I want to use this every day.

For a company aimed at being the knowledge graph of the entire planet, image-based AI services are an obvious thing for Google to want to get right. And for anyone using Google Photos over the last couple of years, you know there have been huge strides made in enhancing these capabilities.

Mobile games have never looked or sounded so good.

The Galaxy S8 is still a great phone, one year after release.

While the Galaxy S9 holds the lion’s share of our current attention, the Galaxy S8 is still chugging along. It’s been a year since the S8’s release, but it’s still worth your money today.

In fact, it may be worth your money more than the S9 is right now. The S9 has the benefit of newer hardware, better cameras, and… not much else, really. The S9 launched  [Read More…]

OnePlus 5T review, 4 months later: Still the phone to beat

Four months after its release, the OnePlus 5T is still one of the best options in the $ 500 category.

Over the last three years, OnePlus managed to carve out a niche for itself by selling phones for a couple hundred dollars less than the likes of the flagships from Samsung, Google, and LG while offering the same top-of-the-line specs. The Chinese brand isn’t the first one to do so, as the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, and  [Read More…]
